Andy Hardy Meets Debutante • 1940 • Movie Title serif slab type typography lettering judygarland

Here’s a monoline slab-serif for the next title card in my series!

I really enjoyed the script lettering created for the theatrical trailer but I had just referenced something similar for the card for “Listen, Darling.” The slab-serif type created for the main titles was also interesting so I decided to use it as reference for my piece instead.

Because this “Andy Hardy” film leaves the fictional town of Carvel behind for New York City I created a subtle art deco background and a cheeky “cleavage” referencing the many crushes Andy has.

“Andy Hardy Meets Debutante” is the second of three “Andy Hardy” movies where Judy plays Betsy Booth, the pal who always finds a way to help Andy, played by Mickey Rooney, sort out his troubled romantic life, even while pining for his affection and attention herself.

In this film, Betsy gives Andy a tour of New York City and introduces him to a wealthy debutante named Daphne. Although she is out of his league, Andy falls for her, of course, and it takes him suffering through a bout of public humiliation before realizing that happiness lies back at home in Carvel with his sweetheart Polly Benedict.
